Here’s a cool way of drawing, gives an eerie deteriorating feeling to these electrical systems, via Cool Hunting:

One of the highlights of the London Design Festival wasn’t a big name or flashy product, it was a low-key installation from a young design graduate placed in a corner of Tent London. Easy to miss perhaps, but once seen it had people transfixed by its graphic beauty. Debbie Smyth was selected as one of the most promising graduates of 2008 for the Dezeen Talent Zone.

Her installation Pins & Threads uses, as the title suggests, sewing pins and black thread to draw a series of electricity pylons across several canvas panels. The technique transforms ordinary structures — often thought of as ugly blots on the landscape — into beautifully minimal graphic drawings, which are at once 2D and 3D, anchored to their panels but also floating in space.
